china is about 30%. if you look at 40 years down the line, china and india will be above that. so you have an enormous structure taking place and, therefore, a strong engine of growth. clearly, if the u.s. consumer was going to collapse again, i don't think the chinese, indian, brazilian consumer would be able to compensate. but if we have a stabilization, as i believe we will have in the western economies, i think that the marginal call is going to be on the emerging economies and i think that's the engine of growth. >> manford, what do you think? to believe what virginie said makes you think asia can decouple with what's going on in the rest of the world. >> i have to agree with her to a larger extent. the asian consumer is becoming more important. but the absolute numbers don't show it. it shows an increasingly large consumer. but we need the situation where the u.s. consumer does recover to at least a moderate extent. i don't think complete decoupling is a possibility. >> mamprett gill, thank you, thank you, virginie, as well. >> thank you. >>> west lb is refusing to comment on su

the economy, reduce the number of jobs, weaken the businesses, guarantee that china and india will outcompete us in of the world market and the only alternative to that is real change. you're not going to be able to get cleverly from here to a better future, as long as the system, whether it's at the state level or the federal level is dominated by structures of special interest, whose entire future is a function of bigger bureaucracies, more spending and higher taxes, so i hope i've at least made 18 nibble case that what we need is a dramatic level of change. what i would like to do is take a five minute break and come back for c-span, but i appreciate you giving us this much time to outline the initials, and then we'll start with questions right after the break.

in december. there are international negotiations. i do not know how to get china and india to come along. if they will go along with it and we will not lose all manufacturers to china -- you understand china is in number one emitter of pollution, not the united states. they do not want to do it. india is even more adamant about doing it. then we lose their jobs. we need to get china under the umbrella and it takes a 2/3 vote in the senate to get it done. i think there is some protection for our consumers and interesindustry. >> glad to see you again today. i am a veteran. i am very proud to be a veteran.

. furthermore when you're faced with competitors like china and india you have to have a strategy for economic growth and economic development in and time of considerable challenge. our argument is if we want to build a system of prosperous, and free future we need to create the most productive, most creative, most entrepreneurial pro-market economy that runs on smart and effective economic regulation. let me be clear, i believe that if you set out, say, what would maximize the number of entrepreneurs in america. there are ways to do that. what would maximize the number of smaller businesses created by small business? there are ways to do that. if you say, how can i have the most continuous process of innovation, we know how to do that. it just doesn't fit the political elite definition of the future, which is high tax, big bureaucracy, and politicians entered. so long term we are going to need budgetary reform legislation. in the last congress more than one dozen bills were introduced to establish entitlement and budget provisions. but all the legislation did was have the same old conversatio
and india have had bad weather. so if you put that together, we're seeing shubert prices in the market hit 28-year highs. so a lot of action. major companies like general mills and kraft wrote a letter saying they need a reduction in tariffs on imports of sugar, and this is the reason why. they think that by the end of the year on supply will only have a 13-day supply of sugar in the united states. they are worried, and having to handle some of these higher prices. if these prices, some say, do not come down, we will have to have them on to consumers. and of course we're in a recession, and that is not good. again, what these companies want to do right now, they can import sugar and do not have to pay a tariff. what they want to do is be allowed to import even more so they can help mitigate some higher prices, but when demand is up and supply is down, you are not really going to avoid those higher prices. what will happen is that as consumers, we will pay more, or you will see more artificial sweeteners, like corn syrup, being used in certain products. so we see prices come down, because i
, and india, and brazil, as long as they are there, been the fta problem is marginal. and then you have done doha round, it essential to poor countries and i think american farmers and ranchers have a bad case that their industry is more restricted and limited by foreign trade and any other. but agriculture is 8% of american exports. it is not going to grow even if there is a successful doha round. igiven that trade is a dissident and difficult issue within the democratic party, i think that if the administration is going to make a big push for trade and spend capital on it, it has to have a different agenda that will do more for america as an economy and do more for our national security goals as a nation. let me give three points from my paper that i would like to say. one is, we need to look harder at ourselves and our own policies. they are not very good. if you look at the american system, we collect $25 million of tariffs every year. that comes from textiles and shoes and luggage. industries that employ very few people here by our of overwhelming importance to the exports of some very
for " the new york times." you traveled with president obama with to india recently. the headline was, obama visits economically depressed region. we were talking to the mayor about jobs and job creation beard what was your take away from the trip and the challenges? guest: we want to the county, not that far from my home town of toledo, ohio, so it felt sort of like going home. it was a relatively small group of 200 people, but most of them were people who had gotten their jobs back after being laid off, in part due, they think, to stimulus money from the federal government in that the stimulus encouraged netstar to come in and buy their own company that had gone bankrupt. host: over the last few weeks as we were beginning to see some upbeat language from the treasury department and the fed about the economy, we keep hearing concerns by economists that this might be a jobless recovery. what does that mean, and how can you have a recovery without more jobs? guest: and that we start from a lower base. we have gone down so far in what some call the great recession, that you can recover, but yo
this global warming tax when everyone in this room knows that china and india and the others are doing it, how will we have a manufacturing sector if we put an extra tenor 15% tax on american manufacturers and the rest of the world doesn't. i don't know about you but i think it is like economic harry carey to move forward with these and we party got our manufacturing sector fought on its back in now seems almost done page data to be talking about this global warming tax. other work -- other questions? >> [inaudible] [inaudible] >> let me say one thing about that, just one thing. the question about why is it that we look at the data and we come to polar opposites conclusions and the answer is i don't really know. every time i give talks about the book the first question is this stuff seems so obvious, and the fact that you just said the lower taxes is pretty obvious you get more of economics and there. we don't think these are radical ideas and we think the evidence is pretty solid and so i don't have a good explanation for how the other side comes up with the opsin collusions and i do think th
